What I Learned This Week At ActiveRain-January 17 to January 23, 2016
I learn something new every day at ActiveRain! With this series I try to highlight one post per day that gave me that “lightbulb” moment. It could be something techie, something about Real Estate, about a place or person! Or it could be a post that made me sit up and take notice!
January 17: Wanda Kubat-Nerdin Butters will but!
Oh this is so true. I have been known to be a “butter” but not good, I know. Do yourself a favor and read Wanda’s post.
January 18: Peter Mohylsky Guiding Principles or Philosophy
Love Peter's philosophy and I think you will as well when you read his post. If you haven't already, please stop and welcome him to ActiveRain.
Kimo has written a moving post with a perspective we don't often see.
January 19: Fred Griffin Florida Honors General Robert E. Lee. Today is a Legal Holiday in Florida.
General Lee has always been a favorite of mine but did not know of these quotes or that his birthday is a legal holiday in Florida.
January 20: Lise Howe In Praise of My Assistant-Who Does Make All the Difference.
Sometimes hiring the right assistant starts with knowing what you need of them.
January 21: Nancy Hermann One Sentence, 30 Interpretations!
I would imagine that there are many who apply for a loan but give up after one glitch. This is helpful information for agents and buyers.
Mike Cooper Things to Remember to Prepare for a Major Storm
As I mentioned to Mike, I wish I'd had this list when we lived in Leesburg, VA. It's not just for snow storms either. Read it and see what might apply to your area.
January 22: Gay Fallin The American's Creed by William Tyler Page.
Raise your hand if you were not aware (or had forgotten) about The American's Creed. Mine was up until I read Gay's post.
Alan May Cheerleading for Listings
I love the point Alan makes here. There's no need to pepper your dialogue with all of the negatives of the property.
January 23: Sally and David Hanson Rough Roof Really?...Yes...that can be a problem.
Sally and David's post is very informative but this is a good instance where the comments can be just as enlightening.
Karen Fiddler Home Design for Autistic Children
I have to admit that I did not know that there were design firms who could work with families to design a home that would provide a feeling of safety for their autistic child. I hope Karen will do some follow up on this.
Thank you for letting me do what I love to do each day... learn something new!
